Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4?Another winner from Kline. Mary Maroney is a second grader who stutters at times. Her class has just finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Mrs. Bird is re-creating the golden-ticket portion of the story. The five children who find tickets in their chocolate bars will be treated to a pizza party, and Mary is determined not to let Marvin, who is disruptive and makes fun of the teacher, spoil classroom activities again. In the process, however, she must deal with a guilty conscience about cheating. The spare ink sketches carry the plot effectively for these realistic characters. Kline's fans will find this beginning chapter book a satisfying, natural extension of Mary Marony and the Snake (Putnam, 1992).?Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 2^-4. One of Kline's best, this sprightly chapter book packages an important message in a sweet, simple story. Mary Marony desperately wants to be one of the five lucky students to find a golden ticket in one of the chocolate bars Mrs. Bird is using for a classroom game based on the story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When some unauthorized peeks reveal that obstreperous Marvin, whom Mary dislikes, is set to win, Mary makes a chocolate bar exchange. As luck would have it, though, her winning is tarnished by her dishonesty, leaving her wondering whether cheating is sometimes OK or always wrong. The dialogue is spunky, the situation and characters seem quite believable, and the humor and neat twist at the end add special glitter to the goings-on. Illustrations by Blanche Sims (seen only in galley) are chockablock with their own brand of lighthearted fun. Stephanie Zvirin

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Lynda G. Pitcher on October 18, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful beginning chapter book for second-graders. We read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl as a read-aloud to second-graders at my school. This book is a great companion for more independent readers who enjoyed Charlie.... It teaches a valuable lesson about telling the truth and being honest while sharing an enjoyable story about a teacher who "re-creates" the chance at finding 5 golden tickets in some candy bars.

My students really liked this story. We had a great discussion on cheating and how it makes you feel. Also, it was a good time to talk about bullies.
